‘Pondering Mysteries’ – Promote Yourself

rosesxxxxxxxxx

I’d like to submit this poem mine to, “Promote Myself”. http://ampitheaterwords.wordpress.com/

Of what may become of this rose
only fate will know.
Its life’s string can be just as frail as our own.
Somehow much more beautiful in its sun touched petals.
The perfect drop of water hanging off its bent red cloth,
asking for just a little bit more time on the velvety smooth surface.
The rose is nothing exceptionally unusual
that it would have men and women glorifying its presence
more than their gods.
The rose calls, and it is heard.
Tainted with pain, painted with chivalry.
The rose is what stands above the rest;
without knowing why.

-Stephanie Matthews

 

A Rose

tea-rose-white-bud

Thoughts rush through my mind
As I stare intently at the rose
Such quiet beauty contained
With thorns waiting so close.

Clipping the bud to hold it
Careful of the delicate shape
Knowing that once picked
It’s life begins to escape.

Slowly I peel back petals
Their scent fills my nose
Laying them out flat to dry
A smile starts and grows.

I place an array of color
Arranged on your pillow
Hopeful when I find you
My love will also show.

“Looking for a rose” – Promote Yourself

The flower of love

 

We have lost a precious flower

We both planted many years ago

We both worked very hard to protect it

We were very happy to see it grow

 

When it was tiny and very weak

We both protected it day after day

We watched our flower develop

Until Mother Nature took it away

 

It broke our hearts into pieces

We both thought it would last

But alas it was impossible

For the dye had already been cast

 

We both thought we would raise our flower

Until our precious flower fell ill

It was next morning we found it

Upon the ground the flower lay still

 

Although we had lost our precious flower

The flower seeds were left behind

Now all the seedlings we shall cherish

For our flower will always be on our mind

In the new year

9-new-year-greetings-2013

I have many targets to reach

I have many important people to see

In the new year,

There is no time for tears

I have no time for fear

In the new year,

I have to develop my projects

A higher standard I will expect

In the new year,

I have twelve months

To reach my goals

No time for tears

Or negative souls,

I have the positive energy

and the optimism to see

Clearer for 2012

No excuses, saying I will shelve

Projects when there is no need,

Yes this year the air

Will be clearer to breathe, 

This year I will not wear

My rose tinted glasses to see
